Unarmoured halftrack vehicles were typical for the Wehrmacht, as they expressed power, speed and cross-country ability, all necessary requirements for motorised units. As a consequence, these halftrack vehicles became almost ubiquitous, and the Heereswaffenamt issued orders to develop vehicles in six different classifications, as early as the Reichswehr period. 
Dr. Hettler has long researched these types of vehicles, and has already written about some in our Nuts & Bolts series: 18-ton ZgKw FAMO, Sd.Kfz. 9 (N&B Vol. 12), 12-ton Zgkw Daimer-Benz Sd.Kfz. 8 (N&B Vol. 16), 3-ton ZgKw Hanomag Sd.Kfz. 10 (N&B Vol. 20), 8-ton ZgKw Krauss-Maffai Sd.Kfz. 7 (N&B Vol. 34).
The book contains 224 pages A4, glue binding, about 430 photos, of which 272 historical photos from regulations and missions in b / w, mostly published for the first time; 120 colour photos of preserved vehicles and their components in museums and private collections
